    Hawkmoon Artwork

    Dear Mike,

    I first read the Runestaff and Castle Brass books about 10 years ago, at the tender age of 14. My Dad bought them in the early 80's and urged me to read them (he is a big fan!). They were without a doubt the best fantasy books I had ever read. I am currently a soldier in the British Army and on returning to my parents house during a spell of leave, decided to dig them out again. I have just finished reading them and needless to say they are just as good as I remember, if not better!

    Having an interest in fantasy artwork, I have often attempted to depict my favourite scenes from these books in various paintings and sketches, however I am not a very good artist! In frustration at my lack of talent, I have made many attempts to locate Hawkmoon/Runestaff related artwork by other artisits and so far have only managed to find a few uninspiring images. So here is my question, am I looking in the wrong places!? Do you have any favourite Hawkmoon/Runestaff pictures?

    Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated!



    P.S. Do you have input into the choice of artwork for your book covers?

    Welcome to the site. Moorcock's Miscellany features an image gallery, containing the following Hawkmoon/Runestaff-related artwork:
    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
